While the Giro d'Italia made a brief visit to Slovenia on Friday during the mountain stage to Castelmonte, race director Mauro Vegni is already hoping that Slovenia will play a far bigger role in the 2023 and that Tadej Pogačar will target the maglia rosa.

The two-time Tour de France winner will try for a third yellow jersey in July and then probably ride the Vuelta a España in the later summer, riding two Grand Tours in the same season for the first time.
